WHEN GOD SEEMS HELPLESS

In Matthew 2 we read the account of Joseph’s dream where he is warned regarding Herod’s intent to kill the baby Jesus. The angel instructs him to take Mary and the baby and flee to Egypt. Have you ever stopped to examine this account carefully? If Jesus is God’s Son,why is He fleeing from a mere mortal? Why didn’t God move Herod’s heart to acknowledge Jesus as the Messiah? If not, why didn’t God just kill Herod? Why didn’t the soldiers have a change of heart? These are some very important questions that have tremendous implications to our daily lives – “Where is God when bad things happen?Where is God when evil people are bent on hurting children, the innocent, and, even, God’s people? Is God too powerless to even carryout His own grand plan in this world?
